A couple of friends and I took a trip down to Dragon. 1500 miles total for me. The Ninja performed well, but the seat still sucks.
I was having a similar issue; the sargent seat is more comfortable, but the somewhat slippery surface meant I would slide forward into the tank whenever I would slow down, particularly if I was wearing my textile riding pants. I was able to pick up one of the Sargent seats with the grippier cover, and it has helped quite a bit with that.I have a sargent. For this trip, I also used an Airhawk air cushion. It worked ok but 550 miles is a lot in one day. The problem is the seat pushes into the tank and the air cushion doesn't work properly.
Me neither. I had the DTX cover on my 98-99 VFR seat for 12 years and when I ordered one up for the Ninja, Sargent didn't mention it and I forgot. Mistake with a textile suit. Not nearly as slippery now with 120k+ miles on it.If you buy a Sargent, you want the DTX cover. It's not like a dirt bike, gripper seat cover, but it's not slick. You have to use rhe custom option to get it, but it's a better cover.
And damn the guy who had Sargent add 1 inch of foam. I wont be happy until I do the same.
